One of the questions I have been getting lately is what sunless tanning lotion do I use? Like most of you, I’ve used tanning lotions that gave me orange and streaky legs and tanning lotions that smell horrible.
I’m no expert but I’ll share with you what I use and how I apply it. I DO NOT do tanning beds ever! When the weather warms up, I will lay out in the sun as long as I’m using sunscreen. When I was younger I would bake in the sun for hours. Long gone are those days!
1. Vita Liberata is a non-toxic self-tanning mousse and is free of parabens, perfume, alcohol, and all chemicals of concern and it also contains Odor Remove technology to ensure that you don’t get that gross self tanner scent (and it totally works by the way!).
I really like this mousse. It comes in three different shades, light, medium and dark. I am using the medium. It does NOT smell.
I apply this one 3 times in a 2 to 3 day period and it lasts for about a week. I use a mitt with this one.
2. Beauty by Earth has no phthalates, parabens, artificial fragrances, or anything else that has the potential to harm your health. It has the best natural and organic ingredients out there.
This is a white lotion. It doesn’t come in different shades and tans dark. I mix this one with lotion when applying it to my legs so they don’t look too dark. I don’t use extra lotion when applying it to my arms, they don’t tan as dark.
This self tanner has a very light smell of aloe vera. It does NOT smell bad. I apply it one time and it lasts 3 to 4 days. I use my hand to apply this self tanner because I mix it with lotion.
How I apply my self tanner:
2. I apply the self tanner to my arms, my chest and my legs.
4. I don’t usually put self tanner on my back but I ordered this lotion applicator to try on my back.
As long as I let both of these dry before I put my clothes on, they don’t get on my clothes. I love both of these but I might lean toward the Vita Liberata being my very favorite.
Okay, I hope that answers your questions. Did I miss anything?
There are lots of trends for spring and summer but I’m picky about the ones I wear. I thought it would be fun to share with you the ones I want to try.

Beauty for the Heart~~Bitterness, anger and pride are not attributes we want but they sometimes rear their ugly head.
But God’s word says, “Lord, may the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be pleasing in your eyes. You are my Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14 (NIRV)
Praying today that our words and our thoughts will be pleasing to Him.
